Restaurant Review – Andrew Edmunds in Soho

This is the kind of place you do not want anyone else to find out about…Andrew Edmunds..

Cozy and Candlelit – it is a great place for a romantic meal or a nice place to go with friends.  Thi s is not the kind of place conducive to taking photos hence the lack of them for this entry.

For decades, the hand-written menu has changed daily  and there are usually additional blackboard specials.

 There is ground floor seating as well as a downstairs  dining area.  There are a couple of tables outside but have no covering so are weather-dependent. For lunch, they usually seat upstairs first/only.  The downstairs can get quite cozy (read: crowded at night) offering a great atmosphere in Soho.

The staff is quite attentive and knowledgeable about wine and the menu items.

The menu is hand-written as it changes daily depending on what is in season and available.  The good-value wine list offers many nice choices.  The last time I visited, the avocado, pear, and rocket salad with dolcelatte dressing was a hit.  I feared the dressing would be a bit much but had somehow been thinned and coated the ingredients just as it should.  I followed this with a main of spinach, pine nut, and parmesan risotto.  I realize this sounds run of the mill but it was anything but….  My husband had roasted cod with a warm lentil salad and salsa verde.  The portions were sizable.  A white Burgundy from the blackboard of wine specials offered just the right balance.  The price is under £30pp for 3 courses before wine.

Dessert was a white chocolate pistachio tart that did not disappoint.  We chose 2 dessert wines from  a nice offering of choices.

I will be back soon….and will try for some pictures this time if the lighting is right.
